Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are currently locking their horns with each other in the ongoing match of the T20 World Cup 2021. While the match is turning out to be very interesting, an ugly incident took place during the match as pacer Lahiru Kumara dismissed opener Liton Das for 16.
The moment took place in the 6th over of Bangladesh’s innings when Kumara’s pitched-up delivery dismissed Das. However, immediately after dismissing him, Kumara went to Litton Das and was seen exchanging a few words. The Bangladesh keeper-batsman was taken aback by the reaction and he too started arguing back as he was walking off.
Within seconds, the argument between both the players intensified as several players from the team and the on-field umpires intervened to separate the two cricketers, before Litton Das was made to walk back to the pavilion.
“That is not what you want to see in a game of cricket,” the commentators said on the broadcasting channel Star Sports.
The video of the moment has been going viral on the internet. Here, watch the video:
Earlier, as the match started, the Sri Lankan skipper won the toss and decided to bowl first. “We are going to bowl first. Our bowlers are doing a good job for us. After the IPL, the wicket is up-and-down, can’t guess what it is, that’s why we want to bowl,” he said at the toss.
“The environment has been really good, we are in a very good mood. The youngsters are doing a good job and they are very confident as well. We have an injury concern. Maheesh Theekshana is out. Binura Fernando comes back in,” he added.
